Are you someone who always wants to show your style and look great for whatever occasion you may be going to? I think we all want to look our best. How we put ourselves together is a reflection of how we feel about ourselves and how others see us. Not that I care what other people think, first and foremost I know I want to please myself. So, do we need a new dress for every event?
In an effort to have a sustainable wardrobe we don't want to have to go out and buy a new dress for every occasion so I have come up with 4 ways you can wear that dress again and have it look different.
1. Add a Scarf
Scarves can be a great way to change the look of a dress. It adds color and changes the line of the neck. You can even wear it as a belt on some dresses which changes the whole look.
This is a big one. A necklace really changes the way something looks. Wearing a big and bold necklace vs a more minimal necklace totally changes the occasion. For a fun day out at the museum maybe add an armful of bangles and then out for dinner with your bosses, a small elegant bracelet would be better.
3. Choose a dress that can be worn different ways.
When you do buy that dress make sure it is versatile. Does it have ties to tie it shorter? Is it something you can dress up or down? Our Lillian Dress is a good example of a dress that can truly look different depending on how you use the ties.
4. Your Shoes and Handbag
What you wear with your dress can change the perception of your look. If you wear ballet flats it sends a different message then pumps. Choose shoes appropriate for the occasion. The right shoes and handbag can really spruce up and change the look of a dress that you have worn to your last 3 outings
The most important thing to remember is to have fun with it. When you look good, you feel good and when you feel good you put it out there in the world. Oh, and one last thing, don't overthink it!
